It seems Mark's plan to make me question my reality is in full gear. Just found the "Add reminder" feature. :)

moderated Site updates #changelog

 

Changes to the site this week:

  • NEW: Enterprise Settings screen for enterprise accounts to make changes to their domain settings.
  • BUGFIX: The email address displayed when you edit an email integration was incorrect. The email address displayed in the overall email integration display is correct.
  • CHANGE: In certain messages, we cannot tell if a signature is part of the original message or a part of the reply. We were displaying these sigs, but that lead to some 'false positives'. So, we're no longer displaying the sigs.
  • CHANGE: Event notification and cancellation emails now include the Organizer name, if there is one.
  • INTERNAL: Cleanup of various javascript displaytime file versions usage.
  • API: Implemented /chatdata endpoint for chats.
  • INTERNAL: Re-implemented much of the chat system to behave well with API calls.
  • BUGFIX: We were not recording failed confirmation email results.
  • API: Changed is_subscribed field in the chat object to chat_sub.
  • API: Added show_closed parameter to the getchats endpoint.
  • BUGFIX: We were not detecting quoted message parts from Outlook that included a "Cc:" header line.
  • CHANGE: Redid the Login With Google authentication system to hopefully conform with their updated requirements.

Have a good weekend everyone.

Mark

Never mind, I just found "email yeses" and "email all responders." Exactly what I was looking for. :) It's under "View responses." (I would take it out from under there.)

It would also be very useful to be able to send a message directly, and only, to the members who have RSVP'd to the event. There is currently no easy way to do this (only their names are included in the view of who replied), and posting an update to the event would go to the entire group.

But the bare minimum would be a simple reminder feature.

And +1 to all of these suggested enhancements as well.

It would also be very helpful if there was an option for new subscribers to automatically receive invitations for existing calendar events, and for unsubscribers to receive cancellations.  You can fake this today by scheduling reminder emails prior to the event, but it would be helpful to have it happen automatically (particularly for recurring events).

I can't seem to find an ability to resent the invite to a calendar event, or (equivalently) to send a "reminder" notice. This would be very helpful to have, since some people use only email and may have misplaced their invitation email, or may have forgotten to RSVP after the first notice, etc.

My group owner asked for help in enabling the database function.  He could not figure out how to do it.  I can't help because I don't know what the admin. menu looks like.  I have searched for a list of steps online, but haven't been successful.  Is there, or could someone put together a list of steps to enable the database function?  Thanks, Dale

Many of the amateur radio groups I belong too have someone offer to run a group buy or purchase parts for distribution to group members.  As a result, there are a lot of "I want one too"  and "put me on the list" messages.  It would be nice to be able to manage group buys with group members placing their name, and mail/contact info on a list maintained by a feature of group.io.  Regards, Dale

 Dale,

The Database feature can accommodate that type of list. The Groups.io Database is limited in functionality, so I would not consider it secure for large financial transactions. But for a friendly group of hams, it probably will suffice.

I hardly ever play with Databases, but it only took a few minutes to put together a sample "Group Buy" table. I included brief documentation in the description to give you an idea of how I did the set up. You can certainly add more columns for more information.

Sorry, I wasn't clear enough.

There are two different types of emails that are associated to an event with RSVPs. The paste I showed previously was from one of the RSVP invites. There were other emails as well that are "sent to attendees". AKA those who RSVP'd. It is addressed from "Moderators...." hence my "Moderator" reference. Actually it only includes the note that I setup in the box for "notes to attendees".

Hopefully, this clarifies things a bit. My first time playing with calendar events. I am easily confused!

moderated option to notify event organizer when someone RSVPs to an event

 

This is similar to the no-notification problem with chats: I was very surprised to find, unless I'm totally missing something, that as the event organizer, I receive no notification when someone RSVPs to an event. This is a serious lack, just as serious as no notifications for chat events. I know there is a planned "notification overhaul," but I think these two should be at the top of the list. It's extremely surprising.
